30 Beginnings: Mary Miller
Q: What is it in particular about sisters and their relationships that intrigues you? What’s the “problem” of sisterhood, or the fascination?
A: This is an interesting question. I have two brothers and I hardly ever write about them, even though they’re funny, quirky guys. One of them is obsessed with olive oil—he drinks it and rubs it all over himself. He talks about inappropriate things at the dinner table. Why don’t I write a story about him? I’m not sure, really. If I had to describe the “problem” or fascination with my sister, it would be something like this: we pinned our hopes on each other early, expected things out of the other that we wouldn’t expect from ourselves, and so our relationship is complicated. It’s like the mother who always wanted to be a cheerleader but she was unpopular and homely and had no coordination and now, twenty-five years later, she’s desperate for her daughter to make the squad. Except for the whole unpopular, homely, uncoordinated cheerleader thing.
